Spritz Cookies

Yield: about 4 dozen cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cups gluten-free flour mix
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 tsp sea salt

colored sugar/sprinkles

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. In the bowl of a standing mixer, cream butter and sugar on low speed until combined. Add remaining ingredients and mix on low until all ingredients are well incorporated, scraping down sides of bowl when necessary. Fill cookie press with 1/4 to 1/2 of the dough at a time, depending on how much your cookie pess holds. Form cookies onto an ungreased cookie sheet, decorate with colored sugar or sprinkles if desired and bake for 6 to 9 minutes or until set and just golden around the edges. Cool on a wire rack and store at room temperature in an airtight container between sheets of wax paper. Note: If you don't have any colored sugar or sprinkles its really easy to make the colored sugar; just take some granulated sugar and add liquid food coloring drops (don't use the gel kind, it will never dry). Mix until you have the shade that you want. Let it dry overnight and store in an airtight container.
